Cockhill Celtic, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary, and Aileach FC have teamed up to raise funds by running their own win a home competition. Like previous Irish based competitions it's not cheap to enter and your entry fee actually buys you a social club membership. As is in this case you become a social member of both clubs! If you look at other competitions from Ireland they are all run in a similar way and seem to be quite successful too. To date this competition has already sold 3000 tickets which should be more than sufficient to see this one get over the line.
How To Enter The Competition
The prize on offer is a four bedroom semi-detached dwelling situated at Gleann Aoibhinn, Clonbeg, Buncrana, Co. Donegal. It is newly built and includes triple glazing. That's pretty much all the details that are given! We suspect that the competition is more likely to appeal to people in the Co. Donegal area but it is open worldwide. Costs such as stamp duty, registration fee, solicitor’s professional fees & VAT will be paid by the clubs and not the winner. This is different to the other Irish based competition listed, Win A House In London!
To enter the competition you simply need to purchase a ticket. This can be done online via Klubfinder or through other means including at local shops in Buncrana. There are no questions to answer and there isn't a free entry route. Remember this competition is being run under Irish Law so UK rules will not apply. As well as the property prize there are other prizes on offer. These include an all-inclusive Mediterranean Cruise plus various vouchers. Some of the prizes are specific to the area.
4000 Ticket Sales
Cockhill Celtic and Aileach FC hope to sell a maximum of just 4000 tickets (total revenue €400,000) by December 2020 in order to conclude the draw. The terms and conditions don't specify any terms with respect to insufficient ticket sales. However the website does indicate that 3000 tickets have already been sold and just 1000 remain. Given that the prizes available total around €200,000 we believe that this property will join the house winners list at the end of 2020.
In our view this particular competition, whilst expensive to enter, is very much aimed at residents of a specific area. If you're outside Co. Donegal then you might want to save your money for the many alternatives that are listed on Loquax. However it's worthy of addition because it shows just how win a house competitions in Ireland and The UK differ. If you can get enough supporters of a good cause together willing to part with €100 then good things can be achieved.
